In an bold reinterpretation of the greatest paintings of Russia's nationwide poet, J. Douglas Clayton reads Boris Godunov because the expression of Alexander Pushkin's brooding about the Russian country, specifically the Russian country of his personal time (some 200 years far-off from the occasions of the play), or even his personal position inside that country. right here we see how the play marks a pointy holiday with the Decembrists and Pushkin's personal younger liberalism, signaling its author's emergence as a Russian conservative. Boris Godunov, Clayton argues, should be top understood as an ideologically conservative protection of autocracy.Sure to surprise readers while it persuades them, Dimitry's coloration unearths, incarnated in Boris Godunov, these 3 components that have been to turn into the slogan of Nicholas's Russia within the 1830s: autocracy, orthodoxy, and nationality.
